Summer Amphibian Update

Hello Amphibian Friends,
 
     Just down the road from our Vernal Pool, heading towards Pottstown on St. Peters Road, is another amazing natural wonder that you may be interested in helping to preserve. The Great Oak, is a beautiful White Oak that is over 400 years old and is one of the trees identified as a “William Penn Oak” in a book by The Green Valley Association. The winter was hard on this wonderful tree and it is in need of some care. Mr. Jim Crater, the CEO of Recycling Services, Inc., has helped with on-going tree care in the past and is helping again this year.
 
     This Saturday, June 20th, from 9:00 to 1:00 at the Summer Solstice Celebration at the Recycling Services,Inc., right here in North Coventry, there will be some of the The Great Oaks “children” for sale. The seedlings were collected before mowing this year. They will be $25 each and the money will go towards care for The Great Oak. There won’t be many for sale, so come early if you would like one. There will be more for sale in the Fall when they get a little bigger. I’ll be there to help out if you have time to visit.
     You can find out more about the Summer Solstice Celebration on the Recycling Center’s Face Book Page. Here is the address for the Recycling Center:
